Day 99

I am still desperately lacking in energy, two days after the real low point. I am heartened, though, by the way things are appearing to move in the right direction. I have slightly more energy than yesterday, but it is still hard to simply get out of bed in the morning. I have frequent rest breaks throughout the day and manage to get by doing just what I need to do.

I have a most welcome relax in the bath. I love these times when I can simply lie back and soak my much abused skin. Unfortunately I am unable to stretch out fully and if I dip my shoulders under my knees stick out! But I give each bit its turn in the water!

The vets said that Brandi’s blood test result should take about 48 hours, but checking late today they have not arrived back. The problem is that we tend to think of animal medicine in the same terms as human medicine.

I change my bag and since changing my attitude things have been much better. Strangely enough, since becoming more critical on the installation of the new bag, they have been better in any case. I guess it’s the overall mental approach.
